Registration You will be enrolling yourself in the courses you wish to take each semester. Please see this link to determine when you can begin registering for classes. https://www.ecu.edu/cs-acad/registrar/regsched.cfm Each semester a list of available classes will be sent to you. There are screen shots of every step of registering for classes, which makes it very easy to follow. This can be found on the MA BlackBoard site. None of our HLTH courses are blocked, so you should be able to register yourself for the course. However, other departments may block their courses. If that is the case, you will need to contact the instructor of the course to request permission to take the course. Dr. Dr. Wallen cannot override courses in other departments. For internships courses: You only register for these courses IF you have discussed the internship option with Dr. Sharon Knight. These courses will be monitored to ensure only approved students are in these courses.

Remember to sign up for the section that your

9 Master of Arts in Health Education Handbook 9 of 14 thesis chair is listed (i.e. if Dr. Wallen is supervising your thesis, you would sign up for the section with her listed as the instructor). Registration Tips Only enroll in the internship course if you have completed ALL required courses AND have spoken to Dr. Knight. 9 hours is considered full-time. MA in Health Education Thesis Option The thesis option is particularly important for students with an interest in research or those who plan to pursue a doctoral degree at some point in their careers. A thesis is a report of a student s research project usually conducted in the final six months to one year of a graduate program. It must be completed prior to graduation. Those who undertake a thesis are exempt from the comprehensive examination. The following checklist offers a general outline of the process associated with doing a thesis: Meet with the MA Program Director for initial advisement and to identify any coursework deficiencies. After taking 18 hours of course work, select a thesis advisor (also called a thesis chair or director). With his/her consultation, choose a thesis committee and contact these individuals to ascertain their willingness to serve. Three tenured or tenure track professors from the Department of Health Education and Promotion should complete your committee. You can allow for additional members outside the department. Submit a thesis proposal to the thesis advisor and, once approved by the advisor, to committee members for approval. If approved by the committee and the study will involve human subjects, submit a completed human subjects proposal to the thesis advisor for input and then to the University Human Subjects Review Committee Guided by input from thesis advisor and committee, complete thesis research and prepare a thesis report. Submit the manuscript of the report to the thesis advisor for review and revision. The manuscript is prepared consistent with the Manual of Basic Requirements for Theses and Dissertations A student may also choose a journal format. This format includes the writing and submission of a journal article. Submit the thesis manuscript to other members of the thesis committee for review and revision. Schedule with thesis committee and complete an oral presentation/ defense of the thesis. Schedule this meeting at least ten working days prior to the defense. Make revisions recommended by committee Once the final thesis is approved by the thesis advisor (and sometimes the committee), electronically submit your thesis as directed by the Graduate School website. Graduate! Guidance for the format and procedures associated with a thesis are offered by the ECU Graduate School: ECU Manual of Basic Requirements for Theses and Dissertations:

10 Master of Arts in Health Education Handbook 10 of 14 Changing from Thesis Option to Coursework or Internship In some instances, students decide to change from the thesis option to the coursework or internship option. Students must contact the MA Program Director as well as complete the following form (http://www.ecu.edu/cs-acad/registrar/upload/thesisnonthesischangeform- 3.pdf). The hours earned for thesis credit will not be counted towards degree completion and must be made up with other courses. MA in Health Education Internship Option The internship experience allows a student the opportunity to function as a health educator in a professional setting. The student needs to consider an agency consistent with their interests and ambitions for the future as well as an agency willing to mentor the student in terms of developing health education skills and competencies. Internships are valuable for those students without experience in Health Education. All students in the internship option are required to complete both HLTH 6990 and HLTH Each course requires 120 contact hours. These courses may be taken simultaneously or sequentially allowing for flexibility regarding the time period over which the 240 total hours are accumulated. Students must complete all of the program s core classes (Health 6001, 6011, 6101, 6110, 6600, 6650) prior to beginning an internship. They must also have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. For more information on internships please see the MA Blackboard site. Comprehensive Examination Students selecting the Internship or Course Work Option in their MA program are required to take a comprehensive examination at the end of their degree program. Students who complete the Thesis Option are exempt from the comprehensive examination. The comprehensive examination is closed-book examination administered over the course of four hours and 15 minutes. The exam occurs in 2 parts: an objective section containing multiple choice/matching questions and an essay section. The comprehensive examination is administered three times a year and is generally scheduled during the last month of the Fall and Spring semesters and mid July. The comprehensive examination covers all required courses. The administration of this exam is subject to change from semester to semester. A study guide will be distributed during the beginning of the semester you take your comprehensive exam. This study guide is always available on the BlackBoard site for the MA in Health Education. Students may find it helpful to keep textbooks and save any course materials to review for the comprehensive exam. The comprehensive examination can be taken twice. In no case will a student who has failed the comprehensive examination be administered a second exam in the same semester in which he/she took the initial exam. If a student fails the exam twice they will be terminated from the MA Program.

11 Master of Arts in Health Education Handbook 11 of 14 Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) Exam The curriculum for the MA in health education is aligned with the Responsibilities and Competencies outlined by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC).
